D3 Semiconductor signs global deal with Mouser

May 17, 2017 // By Nick Flaherty
Power specialist D3 Semiconductor has signed a global distribution deal with Mouser Electronics two months after launching its first MOSFET devices.

The deal sees Mouser stocking D3 Semi's full product line of +FET line of 650V-rated superjunction MOSFETs for hard–switched applications such as PFC boost and inverters used in telecom, enterprise computing, UPS and solar panels.

The MOSFETs feature an low RDS on on-state resistance ranging from 32 mΩ to 1000 mΩ for improved performance in low-frequency applications, as well as fast-switching capabilities that enable the devices to perform rapid transfers of the gate charge in a short period of time. Each device in the family is 100 percent avalanche tested at the industry's highest avalanche current levels during production to ensure the most robust solution for even the most demanding applications. The devices also meet the JESD 22 standard for electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance and are high temperature reverse bias (HTRB) stress tested at over 3,000 hours

D3’s product roadmap combines mixed-signal functions with high-voltage switching devices to provide the highest product reliability along with the ability to quickly tailor solutions for a wide variety of applications. In addition to supporting power markets in the Americas and Europe, D3 Semi has a presence in Asia through its affiliate company, D3 Asia.

"We are delighted to have this world-class, highly regarded distributor stocking our initial offering of +FET MOSFETs,” said Wally Klass, D3 Semiconductor's Global Business Development Director and D3 Asia's President and Managing Director. “Mouser's approach customer service, like ours, is to provide best-quality products combined with fast and flexible delivery."

"D3 Semi's +FET superjunction technology is unique in fusing the power and efficiency of superjunction architectures with mixed-signal precision," said Kristin Schuetter, Vice President, Supplier Management, Products, of Mouser Electronics. "Our customers in a wide range of demanding high–reliability power markets will benefit from D3 Semi's high-performance, scalable solutions."

Founded in late 2011, D3 Semiconductor provides system solutions through its ecosystem of affiliated companies, including Theta Power Systems, Terigo Semiconductor and D3 Semiconductor Asia (D3 Asia). It develops power MOSFETs, motor controllers and gate drivers along
